Strange As It May Seem
11 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Actors Home is used as the premise for the boys to do one of the more lively renditions of Whose on First. To me, this one has more life than the one in the movie as there seems to be more energy to it.

Bud & Lou are out looking for a job for Lou. This time, Lou starts selling papers on a street corner when an eccentric rich-man comes up & offers Lou money. Then a policeman tell Bud & Lou the man is from the Actors Home & is loony. So Bud tears up the money.

The policeman comes back & tells Bud he is mistaken & that the torn up money is real. Bud loses his mind & is dragged away to the actors home. The premise works well & then the classic routine is used to cap the episode. It is just as funny as always. I'm not sure who paid for the players, but I am sure what this is - funny.
